't really spend on campaigning in those areas. last fall you cannot turn on the tv in virginia without seeing ads. especially when the -- especially when the obama ads were better than the romney ads. it was weird when you go to visit people in new york or los angeles. they are not actually experiencing the campaign. if you went to a congressional district, then you would go fight in california, because republicans could win 20 out the hobbi54. i'm normally reluctant to tamper with these long standing institutions and practices, but there might be case in this instance for at least. thinking least. host: your comments on speaker boehner, a first one to go to danny joining us on the democratic line. good morning. caller: hello. you put harry reid on the cover. if you look up the words chicken hawk and neocon, there's a picture of bill kristol. the only people who were surprised that president obama won the election were fox news viewers. host: thanks for the call. guest: i was not surprised. i thought romney had a chance, and he was all a little short at the end. if the viewer does not
delay the ex-penned showdown between democrats and republicans over spending cuts. the house passed a bill last week. >>> president obama says he will sign it if it passes in the senate. >>> we are still following a developing story out of alabama. a-year-old boy is being held hostage and is now going on three days. here is what we know. 63-year-old man boarded a school bus tuesday after fatally shooting the bus driver. he grabbed the 5-year-old sxwoy pled the scene. police tracked the man down but says he has been holding the child hostage for more than 30 hours. neighbors of the man describe him as a loner and survivalist who distrust it is government. you can count on news4 for updates it is a story continues to unfold. >>> metro says it may need to review its procedures with d.c. fire after a chaotic evening commute. an insulator started smoking on the green line and the emergency responder cut the wrong electricity source. that left two trains stopped for hours between the anacostia and navy yard stations. some people got off and tried to walk. eventually the trains made it to
reported that -- a few weeks ago president obama reportedly said that america doesn't have a spending problem. this is completely at odds with what independent experts tell us and what is perfectly apparent to anybody who is alert. and last week i brought this chart behind me to the floor to illustrate the point. as everyone knows, we're running trillion-dollar annual deficits. what this chart shows is the gap between government spending and revenue just keeps getting wider and wider and wider. so let's take a look at it. the occupant of the chair is relatively new to the senate, but not new to the facts. the green area here represents both historic and projected tax revenue. the blue area here, the dark blue area, as you can see, really kind of flat line flatlit here to 2014, is the new revenue that the president got at the end of the new year as a result of the law. the tax rates sunsetted, expired at midnight on new year's eve. the congress then wisely continued the current tax rates for 99% of americans, made those rates permanent so you wouldn't have another event like new year's
to speak about taxes, debt and spending. it's time for president obama to show leadership, real leadership, on the biggest threat that america faces to our future prosperity. as my good friend, the republican leader, has said, if we don't get a handle on spending and debt, not much else matters. it has now been 1,371 days, almost four years, since democrats who control the united states senate have brought a budget to the floor and had a vote on and passed the budget. over that time our national debt has grown by more than $5.2 trillion. our credit rating has been downgraded because of fears that we may not be able to pay our debt back when it is ultimately due. and we have experienced the highest -- excuse me -- the longest period of high unemployment since the great depression. since the end of the official recession in 2009, americans' household median income has fallen by roughly $2,500, while the cost of employer-provided family health insurance has increased by more than $2,300, roughly a comparable amount. not only has income fallen by $2,500; costs have gone up thanks to obamacare
. they don't really want to talk about a contraction on president obama's watch. republicans aren't really comfortable with the idea that austerity -- that these big huge defense cuts and government spending cuts that we've seen can have a drag affect on the gdp going into the see sequester debate. both sides are uncomfortable with this number, and that's why we probably won't see it discussed for more than a news cycle or two. then we'll move on. >> affect show it's a kabarb. >> this is the very last time anybody will talk about this number in washington right here. >> we're making history. >> right. >> rona, the, sequestration debate, armageddon, whatever you want to call it, has been tossed around in a variety of different fashions, especially on the right because initially it was seen -- we cannot do this. defense cuts disproportionately hurt the gop, and, yet, now there is sort of maybe the sense that they will let sec west rags go ahead. mr. boehner says he has significant republican support, including gop defense hawks, on the side of letting the gop work. i got that in my back pock
two years should be to deny president obama a second term. but the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill, to end the bailouts, cut spending and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all of those things is to put someone in the white house who won't veto any of these things. >> after that, democrats worried republicans were trying to annihilate the democratic party, in part by trying to destroy unions, the most vivid example of that, wisconsin. the republican governor successfully pushed a bill that stripped collective bargaining rights for most public unions. ohio and michigan followed scott walker's lead with mixed success. and now it seems the tables have turned. now if you believe boehner, the democrats want to annihilate the gop. so the talkback question for you, do you agree with boehner? will obama try to annihilate the republican party? facebook.com/carolcnn, or tweet me @carolcnn. i'll be right back. neutrogena® rapid wrinkle repair has the fastest retinol formula. to visibly reduce fine lines and wri
security and medicare? does president obama want to destroy the republican party? >> obviously, republicans want to make sure these entitlement programs are here for future generations, right now, for every dollar we spend on the young people, we are spending $4 on seniors. right now, in medicare, the average person pays for 1/3 of the cost of the medicare program, dick durbin, for what it has been worth has been one of those people who is willing to sit down and solve the problem and i congratulate him on that. as far as the president's goal of annihilating the republican party, i will say that i was glad to see that the house was unified behind something recently as it relates to the fiscal issues and i think that is a backstop to that. the fact is, one thing the president didn't mention in his speech, was the major fiscal issue that our nation faces. it was everything but that. and, to me, that was disheartening. it is the one issue that, before anything else, we need to put in the rearview mirror to make our country stronger. >> chris: senator durbin, you are a member of a bipartisan gr
